Welcome all. Apologies up front but this build will be drawn out and go in fits and starts. Once I get the color of the rad mounts worked out, I will be ordering the pedestal. From there it will be a wait for the next bi-color CaseLabs window (not the one starting in 10ish days) - probably the next one.

I've sketched out actual hardware but I remain fluid as new items come out and old ones decrease in price.

I was thinking about this in bed last night. Looking down at it, I will have black fan, white rad, ? rad support then black fan.
Looking into the side you will see black outer fan parts, white blades and you might be able to see through to the white rad.

I still don't know if that helps me decide biggrinsmiley.gif

Well ...

  • getting similar (Bitspower) parts through PPCs would have cost $436 (letting the discount pay for the shipping) and I would have got them in 5-7 days

So ... save $110 (or $210 for not going Bitspower) but wait some days longer. Guess I will have to wait and see how the shipping process goes. Not that I actually have anything to install them in yet ... so shipping delays is the least of my problems.

Edit: Just noticed this ...
Awaiting Shipment
Processing Time remaining: 15 days 14 hours 44 minutes

One good thing about a long processing time is that I may have the ability to make slight changes to the order. Originally, all of the fittings were ordered in BLACK. However, I just sent this message to my AliExpress contact ...

Kim,

I've realized that I would like to make a few more color changes. If it is too late, then fine ... leave the order as is. However, I would like to change the following

I have ordered 10 TCDZS-V1 all in BLACK. I would like to change that to 8 BLACK and 2 WHITE.
I originally ordered 15 TCDZS-V1 all in BLACK. I would like to change that to 12 BLACK and 3 WHITE.

Again, if it is too late to change - then fine. Also, please let me know if there is a price difference and we'll work something out.

Regards,

I'll let you know what sort of reply I get.

When go to work will change the stock. If have white color in stock, will delivery as your infomation, if not, send as order, ok?

Any question feel free to let me know.

Best regards!

Kim

I think that says it all. If he has white stock then no problem. Else I will have to make a separate order. Might do that. Might not. Unsure biggrin.gif

Pedestal Ordered

I've just placed my CaseLabs S5 Pedestal order. I decided to go with a WHITE radiator mount option as this will 'declutter' the inside of the pedestal. In this way, the outside of the pedestal will be black while almost everything on the inside will be white. The exceptions are ...
  • fan outsides
  • fan connector hubs
  • hardline tubing
  • cables


Some commentary on the items ordered ... smile.gif
  • 120.1 flex bay fan mount.
    It will hold an intake fan. I will need some sort of air movement to clear out the insides of the pedestal.

  • 120.2 fan cover / mount
    I have future plans for this .. but I also wanted to see if I can use it to span the top gap in the pedestal

  • The Pedestal itself
    I've already emailed my parts / color combo to CaseLabs. Hopefully, I have listed all of the pedestal parts

  • 2 x 120.3 rad mounts (white)

  • An S5 top rad mount ... but BLANK! And in Black.
    I have future plans for this .. but I also wanted to see if I can use it to span the top gap in the pedestal

Pedestal Fans Ordered

I've just placed an order for 14 Cryorig QF120 Balance fans. These are all PWM fans and the 'Balanced' version run from 330 RPM up to 1600 RPM with a noise range of 10 to 25 dBA.

They have been getting some good reviews at DV Tests, Thermal Bench and linustechtips. The last quoted review is more of a forum post and someone did comment that ...

Quote:
wait...so there's an inlet on the fan frame...so having this fan in a pull config on a rad is detrimental?

That is a good observation as Cryorig include some inlets in the frame ...
Quote:

Performance Efficiency and Acoustics

You can see them on this picture ...

03_black-background_qf120_front-angle_1024.jpg

So ... it seems I'll need to do some modification / adjustment for the fans in pull mode.

Radiator's Have Landed

I'd placed an order for 2 120.3 Hardware Labs Black Ice SR2 Multiport Radiator (in Satin White with white fins) They came today.

Apparently, these rads are fairly new. I picked them because I liked the all around port options. The reviews (see below) contain pictures with a logo on them. I didn't see any logo on my white versions. But that may be because I only looked at one side of the rad. I'll pop off now and check the other side.

Some reviews ... if you are interested ...
Extreme Rigs
Thermal Bench

Here are some of my pics ...


There are some stats on the box ... but my picture of the box didn't turn out too well - check out one of the reviews ... they have box pictures.

Inside brown box ... ohhhh
LiqAsrt-0008-Rad02.jpg


And the rad ... in white. There are some other goodies in the thingo at the end.
LiqAsrt-0009-Rad03.jpg


A White rad ... in white ... did I mention that?
LiqAsrt-0010-Rad04.jpg


Ports. Lovely ports. Wonderful PORTS. The line routing options are endless smile.gif.
LiqAsrt-0011-Rad05.jpg


Goodies. Am I right in thinking that I can't use these plugs for anything? I'm assuming they are just there to keep the dust out.
LiqAsrt-0012-Rad06.jpg


Screw guards for us noobs smile.gif.
LiqAsrt-0013-Rad07.jpg


I've got 2 silverstonetek 4-pin hubs to run my rad fans. I was planning on sitting them on top of the rad ... but it isn't going to play nice.
LiqAsrt-0014-Rad08.jpg

LiqAsrt-0015-Rad09.jpg


But ... the good thing ... is that the fan cables don't need to be too long.
(Ignore the Noctua fan ... just an example)

LiqAsrt-0016-Rad10.jpg


I mentioned two packages above ... here is what I got in the other one. 1/4" wide tape in various colors. It looks a little like the Olympic rings ...
LiqAsrt-0017-Rad11.jpg


... but I selected these colors for other reasons.
